I listened to the tutorial, very impressive! The internet radio puts other DTB players to shame.
I find the Brailliant BI Display from Humanware a lovely reading experience. The braille cells are crisp and unlike some other displays they don’t have that plastic squeaky feel when you glide your fingers over them. As well, I love how the display is constructed mostly of aluminium and therefore is quite durable and yet surprisingly lightweight to carry around. Another feature that makes the Brailliant such a joy to use, is the signature thumb keys. Your thumbs just fall on them naturally as you are reading with your fingers on the display, allowing your fingers to stay on the cells while you pan back and forth with your thumbs. I enjoy this feature on my BrailleNote Apex and I’m so glad it’s been incorporated into the Brailliant line as well.
The sense of freedom and triumph could probably only be understood by someone who, like me, had never been able to do something like this before unaccompanied. Thanks to the Breeze, this summer will be far less isolating for me than the last one. I've learned how to get to a mall and restaurant, my church, and a few other places including a centre where I volunteer once a week mentoring young people.
I use my victor reader to record voice lessons, choir rehearsals and mp3 files of music I am rehearsing. The variable speed control allows me to practice slowly until i get the part perfected, then, speed it up to the designated tempo. I really am pleased with the amount of material I can store on the victor reader and the book mark feature allows me to locate passages in music I want to review.
One thing I couldn't live without is my BrailleNote Apex. I can surf the web (with sites such as Google) when I am doing a research project or just to find information much faster than a regular computer.
